Wachholz, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard (Golden - 7 April 1965)


Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Wachholz of 515 E. 5th Street, Neillsville, who were married April 7, 1915 in Springfield, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend.


Saturday evening they will be guests at a supper at the home of their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. William (Doris) Simek, on Bruley St., Neillsville. Sunday, they will hold open house from 2 to 5 p.m. in St. John’s Lutheran School.


Mr. and Mrs. Wachholz are expecting their five children and their families to be present. They are: Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Wachholz and son, Mr. and Mrs. William (Violet) Neuhaus and Miss Elaine Wachholz, all of St. Paul, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Hilton ‘Bub’ Wachholz and daughters of Columbus, O.; and Mr. and Mrs. Simek and son, Jim.


The Wachholzes were born in Marquette County, residing eight miles apart. They attended different schools, but were members of the same church.  They farmed for nine years in Westfield, then farmed near Edgar before coming to Clark County.  They located on a farm in the Town of York in 1928, and in 1945 they moved into their present home.


Mr. Wachholz was employed by the city of Neillsville for 19 years with the street department and also worked for the forestry department for six months.  Two years ago he suffered a light stroke.


Mrs. Wachholz worked on the hot lunch staff of Neillsville High School for several years.


Mr. and Mrs. Wachholz, who have five grandchildren, are members of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Neillsville.
